HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY POSTCODES!!!! 

The humble postcode is one of the backbones of our business helping us to get your mail delivered to the right place and quickly. We're celebrating 40 years of the postcode and have some fun facts below for you. If you're left wanting more, you can read the full story here: http://ryml.me/1f09whh

Five facts about the postcode

• There are around 1.8 million postcodes across the UK, covering over 29 million addresses. In total, there are 48 million postcodes available under Royal Mail’s alpha-numeric system

• The combination of letters and numbers was chosen because people can remember a mixture of numbers and letters more easily than a list of numbers and it gives more code combinations

• Optical recognition machines read the postcodes and automatically convert them to phosphor dots. These are in turn read by the sorting machines which handle correctly addressed mail, post-coded letters 20 times faster than manual sorting
• On average one postcode covers 17 residential addresses

• Royal Mail’s online Postcode Finder is one of the UK’s most used webpages with around 100,000 visits a day – more than 40 million a year

Did you know……?
• High Street is the UK’s most common road name 
• The most popular house name is The Cottage
• The longest post town is Llanfairpwllgwyngyll
• One of the most unusual street names is Whip Ma Whop Ma Gate, YORK, YO1 8BL
• We believe the longest street name is Stoke Newington Church Street, LONDON, N16
 
The origin of the postcode
1856 – a rapid growth in London’s population in the mid-1800s led to a greater volume of letters, To accelerate the delivery of mail in London, Sir Rowland Hill proposed a solution which involved dividing the capital into ten separate postal districts. The districts were based on the compass points. An office was established for the ten districts created – EC (Eastern Central), WC (Western central), and NW, N, NE, E, SE, S, SW and W. The plan was authorised in 1856 and implemented during 1857 and 1858.

The public were asked to add the initials of the district to the end of an address. This helped accelerate the circulation of London’s mail.

1860s - London was followed by other large towns. The initial of the town name was used - for example, M for Manchester – followed by a number to indicate the geographic district. Liverpool was the first provincial town to be divided into districts in 1864/5, followed by Manchester. By the early 1930s, other towns and cities including Sheffield, Edinburgh, and Birmingham had joined the scheme.

1917 - during the First World War numbers were introduced to postcodes as the districts were divided into sub-districts, such as SW6 for Fulham, still in use today. These were introduced to assist women who had taken over the sorting work from men who had gone to war and therefore did not have the knowledge or experience acquired over many years in the job.
Royal Mail celebrates 40th anniversary of the postcode
Royal Mail is celebrating 40 years since the allocation of postcodes to every town in Britain was completed in 1974. To mark the anniversary, Royal Mail is recognising Norwich, the city which pioneered the modern postcode, with a blue plaque. Royal Mail is also celebrating the anniversary by issuing a special postmark which will be applied to letters from 7th April.
